Thanks, but no thanks. That’s apparently what Governor Jennifer Granholm is saying to the idea of becoming the president of Wayne State University when her term is over.
WSU Board member Debbie Dingell said Friday that Granholm has said she’s not interested in the job. Granholm has been listed as a possible replacement for Jay Noren, who’s retiring to be closer to his wife, who lives in Illinois.
The board still has to set up a search committee to look for a successor.
Rumors were flying Friday morning, after Wayne State University Board of Governors Chair Richard Bernstein had told the Detroit Free Press Granholm would make a “fabulous choice.”
Former Michigan Congressman David Bonior also has been mentioned as a possible candidate.
